Welcome to Team Rowlet, Din.  :)

Although I hardly use mine.  Basically just bust it out for obliterating enemies that call for help with it's OP Razor Leaf.

I've discovered that Grass isn't the best type (it's pretty bad, actually) but Rowlet has Flying to go with it, so it's not at a disadvantage to other two starters.  Just stay the heck away from Ice attacks.

EDIT: My Pokemon Sun Update
So I hatched my egg to get my Eevee.  I was so excited, because Jolteon is maybe my favorite Pokemon from my childhood.  I then proceeded to evolve it into a Sylveon on accident.  Clearly, I have no idea what I'm doing.

Soooo.... I just went into GTS and traded for a Jolteon. :P
Luckily, someone was looking for a Happiny (a pretty rare catch I happened to have) so I was able to make the trade.

In other news, I fought a wild Psyduck and got him down to 1 HP so I could catch him and add him to the Dex.  He proceeded to successfully call for help NINE TIMES IN A ROW, each time preventing me from using a Pokeball.  He probably would have kept doing it over and over, never failing to get help, until I ran out of PP on all my moves.  However, I just whacked the first one and ended up catching the last help he called in.
The annoying thing was that I used False Swipe to safely weaken the first Psyduck, but as I was killing its help, I leveled up, learned a new skill, and replaced False Swipe with it.  So I ran the risk of killing both Psyducks and catching none.  It was irritating, but hilarious afterwards.  Somewhere in my game, there is a big pile of unconscious Psyducks.

Moral of the story:  You can't trust the system.  Also, use a Quick Ball or Nest Ball to catch a Psyduck.  Or put it to sleep.

Caved and bought it. Should be here Saturday. Just felt too weird not playing a mainline Final Fantasy at launch after doing so for every numbered entry since VIII. Hopefully I can find *some* enjoyment out of it, but the impressions here are not giving me much confidence.

I'm a really hard sell for action games, I hate open worlds and MMO style quest systems. Just sayin, I can say the game is objectively good, I guess. Not my cup of tea? I'm just beelining the story now. It's better for me.

Reading TVTropes on A Wrinkle in Time and now I'm getting L'Englesian vibes from SMT.
Oh man I remember reading A Wrinkle in Time when I was a kid. I don't actually remember too much about the book itself, but I do remember it was the first time I was exposed to the bending space explanation of FTL travel.

That's exactly why I was surprised to get a female starter.  In Y I got a bashful male Froakie

Game Journals / Re: Help me defeat my (super weird) Steam backlog!

After not visiting the thread for a minute cause life kept me barely able to keep up with gaming/journal posts I am now utterly convinced you are completing my backlog, Tomara.

Seriously, thank you for all of this info.

I said it before but this thread is invaluable to me. If I gave you a list of crap-ohla to check out and give a review of it would have looked somewhat like this. I am bookmarking this now and referencing it for my steam selections for a looooong time to come.

I've been playing chess games...

The first one is simple called Knights and involves putting knights (red/blue) on squares of the same colour. Later levels include yellow knights you need to move around to make room. It's pretty challenging, as moving the final piece in place often involves thinking more than a few steps ahead and since it's all knights everywhere, it can be difficult to get a good idea where everything can move.

The second one is Gigachess, which feels like a more advanced version of cat and mouse checkers. Basically, you have up to four pieces (a combination of knights, bishops and rooks) and you have to capture all the pawns. Capturing pawns results in SP, which you can use to buy items, like blocks to block pawns and bombs to blow them up. There's a puzzle mode, which is, well, puzzles, and an endless mode that's like a zombie apocalypse for chess pieces. Pawns attack in waves and you need to survive as long as you can while stopping as many as possible. Shiny pawns are extra strong. They move two spaces and can attack like knights. The game ends when either 10 pawns have breached your defences or all your pieces are dead.

Give it to me straight, Tomara. I've been looking for straight up CHESS for awhile. Fancy pieces are all fine, but I want plain reg-rules chess. Actually fancy pieces and animations would kick ass to be perfectly frank.

The problem here is "options" (too many) and all of them I find seem to have some substantial problem or another so I've yet to acquire a chess title. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I AM CHRONO SETSTUNA -- Made it through some plot stuff and to Floneia (sp?). So far I adore the title but it sure has it's faults. Number uno being waaaaay to easy. 2, the game re-uses it's own assets waaaaay too much. And 3, I need some puzzles man!! Hoping all of this is "early on" issues that clear themselves up before it becomes an exercise in patience because in the soundtrack and charm department this game delivers.

Also as an aside for anyone looking for a "christmas" RPG (if such a thing was a thing) I am Setsuna suits the season fantastic. You'll know what I mean within the first hour of gameplay (youtube it if you are curious).

GRAVITY RUSH-- Restored the entertainment district and the battle of the femme fatale ensues via Kat's now obvious rival/nemesis. The plot is thin but keeps me invested in the fantastic gameplay. Still disturbed by the camera.
